Latest Sony FE camera and lenses
New Sony RX series page
just added a new page to the nav bar
, this time it's a complete list of the RX series (Sony's fixed lens large sensor compacts) starting from the first model
introduced in 2012 (RX100), to the most recent; the updated RX100 IV and RX10 II.
There have been
10 iterations of three cameras; three RX1 full frames cameras, three RX10 super zooms, and a whopping four of the RX100 pocket
Interestingly, the first RX1 full frame cameras are selling for the same price
(full retail) today, ($2800) as they were in 2012-13.
Tamron introduces new full frame primes
(also) for Sony 'A' mount.
Tamron tries to help Sony resurrect their 'A' mount camera business
by including a Sony mount alongside the far more important Canon/Nikon versions. New lenses include a 35mm F/1.8
, and 45mm F/1.8
. I can see the usefulness of the 35mm, but the 45mm is too close to 35mm, (or vice versa I suppose). I'm guessing
they will be pretty good lenses at a good price, looks like around $600 each. Sony's world is the FE system right now,
and though you can use the new lenses with an adapter on an FE camera, why on earth would you cripple your camera with a lens
that's not made for it?
In all honesty, it's hard for me to recommend any more 'A' mount
stuff as I don't think Sony is going to keep it alive in any real fashion. I no longer use 'A' mount products. I'm sure
they'll come out with another camera or two, then quietly pull the plug on the system altogether.
been over three years since a new Sony 'A' lens was produced, which was the 50/1.4 Zeiss
, along with newer versions of old lenses. The 'A' mount ship is dead in the water. Almost half of their lenses
for that mount are re-badged Minolta lenses from the 1980s and 90s. Time to jump ship and board the 'E' mount!
Sony 'E' mount lens chart freshly updated with all the latest lenses
from all manufacturers.
Huge selection of 'E' mount lenses to browse, find the lens
that fits your needs here. There's a new B&H price check link in the first column so you can easily determine if the lens is on sale, or there
are rebates available, or if it fits your budget.
are almost 100 Sony 'E' mount and a mount lenses available including legacy lenses, (not counting updated models), plus dozens of aftermarket models. All my lens reviews here. Remember, a mount lenses work properly on 'E' mount cameras, you just need an
adapter, either the LA-EA4 (full AF) or LA-EA3, (manual focus only).
